Successful cloud adoption isn’t about a lift-and-shift of your current environment. Applications need to leverage SaaS or be re-platformed to take advantage of new cloud-native architectures and associated technologies such as containers and micro-services, and that’s even before we get onto more recent capabilities such as server-less computing and artificial intelligence. Costs needs to be optimized also, and cultures transformed to become more DevOps centric. It’s these type of changes that will really boost agility, and shorten time to value. Finding a partner that can articulate the challenge and help you navigate the journey is half the battle. Partnering with a provider who can actually deliver on the model is the second half of the equation. Look for a partner that can blend enterprise architecture with an end-to-end delivery capability to ensure you get bring the vision to life.
